regardless of their race or gender. that response comes because not so, says recent strawberry mansion class of 2017 graduate, and lacrosse star, nadira mccrea whose lawsuit claims the school district dropped the ball by not getting the dock men ration required by the university of hartford, causing nadira not claiming the full division one scholarship. the suit also claims the district keeps black majority high schools only playing each other, in the traditional white female sport of lacrosse cents and field hockey. that keeps the girls from really increasing their skills, against the better competition, and so increasing chances of scholarships at top universities, the suit claims, nadira's coach also lost her job after bringing all of this to the district's attention. >> we do expect others are going to come forward, because we're fairly confident that nadira isn't the only girl who has experienced, you know,
some damage from these practices. >> it made me feel that like we weren't good enough to play lacrosse because we were discouraged so many times from not playing, and like not being noticed for like the great potential that we have, even though we probably weren't great, and we didn't get the long time training that other female lacrosse players god -- got. i feel like we were still able to play in the league. >> if you manipulate the schedule and make the girls only have four teams, and they only play each other, and they don't play the better teams, and they don't have the uniforms, what you end up doing, you end up taking a team with 30 girls, down to 15 girls, down to five girls, down to know girls, because you're discouraging the girls, telling them, sending them the message this is not their sport, that they should go pick up a basketball and go do something else. >> well, lawsuit claims, that when nadira ask for the missing paperwork they
responded by disbelieving she even got into the school like the university of hartford, advised her to get into a lesser school. and set her sites on less prestigious schools. well, i'm if the going to say chaney is less prestigious, but that's where she plans to go. >> guys? >> startling when you say, that i can't even believe the words coming out of your mouth, steve, thank you. 5:36. happening today: such a sad good-bye, they're going to be having the funeral today for the man shot to death right in front of his two year old daughter in front of their home in spring garden. thirty-eight year old gerald was shot thursday, during a robbery near his home, police say he was gunned down by 16 year old marvin roberts. his 21 year old brother has also been charged. he's from new jersey. he was with his car and his child was in his car and they wanted to take it and he said no according to police, then he got killed. his service is going to be held this morning, at the cathedral basilica of saints peter and paul. >> another difficult morning. 5:36. washington is about to double down on debt.

you make up for the loss revenue, or does it simply get piled on to the deficit at least in the short-term, and that appears to be kind of the direction that everyone is leaning in right now. >> there will be a lot of back and forth specially with billions and billions of dollars being requested. i know supposed to talk about the debt crisis, let's talk about the travel ban. what's going on here? >> the supreme court stepping in to halt a lower court's decision that would have constricted the president's ability to hold back certain classes of individuals, coming into the country, win for the administration see ultimately what the full court decides to do. >> so much going on, of course the president taking tour right now, tax tour, coming through pennsylvania as one of the states on the trip. thank you, doug shall appreciate it the. >> thanks, 5:38. let's get check on weather and traffic we start with bob kelly, good morning. >> good morning everybody, a 5:38, you mentioned downtown philly starting to see some volume coming into the city on the vine expressway. hitting the brakes little bit coming around the curve. and some construction coming
